Small RVs and trailers become more popular in recent years. Not just because they are easier to navigate and find parking spots with but they cater for a younger crowd, the weekend campers and nomads who choose to live in it for a while. Aside from the size and price, one thing that separates Class Bs from Class As and C RVs, is the unique bathrooms. Due to their design and limited space, Class Bs have what is referred to as “wet-baths”. A wet bath is simply a shower and toilet, rolled into one. Instead of having a designated shower stall, the whole compact bathroom is the shower. This means the floor has a drain in it and due to the toilet, you can take a standing shower or sit down. This RV is definitely not the best option for large families, due to the limited space throughout but can be a fun option for two people who want to get away for the weekend.
Here is a list of a few cool small RVs with shower and toilet:
This RV is designed really well for the space, with a fully equipped kitchen and space to lounge and sleep. The bathroom is located at the rear of the RV and it provides an ergonomic toilet and a sink that can fold away, when not in use. It doesn’t have a door but rather a curtain and a bonus element…a closet! It may be compact but it does have a practical design, closet storage space, and overall, offers the main purposes of having a bathroom on board. Because of the small space, adding a shower and toilet to a small RV can be difficult but what I really dislike about the design, in this case, is that when you open the back doors your toilet is on display! Their website couldn’t be reached in 2020, I am not sure what happened with the company. RV trader has some used ones available.
Fresh water: 17.6 gallon
Waste water: 23 gallon
Off Grid Adventures Vans or Ogavans for short, are conversion vans, built for comfort. These vans are available in 3 packages: “The Rambler”, “The Summit”, and “The Vagabond”. Converting prices start around $33,000 plus the price of the van and if you choose, there are custom options available. This allows you to tailor the van to fit your own personalized wants/needs. Like traditional Class Bs, the ogavans have the option of a wet-bath. You don’t have to have the on board bathroom feature but if you do opt for it, you will lose some overhead cabinets and some counter space in your kitchen area. With that being said, the bathroom is a very small space with a shower and toilet but it doesn’t have a sink. This means hands will have to be washed in the kitchen area. You can convert RAM, Ford or Mercedes vans.
Price: 72k if you choose a new van
Fresh water: 26 gallon
Waste water: 3 gallon
This Class B RV gives you a modernized approach for this class of motorhome. Priced under $85,000 with entertainment features and plenty of upgrade options, the Fleetwood Irok screams luxury with all of its bells and whistles. Its wet-bath also has the same modernized look as the rest of the interior. It is designed well, has recessed lighting in the ceiling, a modern sink and faucet, and a built in toilet paper holder with cover. Another great feature is the bathroom is accessed through doors instead of just a retractable curtain.
The Winnebago Travato is designed to fit your preferences, as well as needs. With a larger price tag of under $115,000, this RV is stylish, modern, and houses a really nice wet-bath. The bathroom has storage under the sink, a bamboo shower platform, above the toilet storage, and the means to close off the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. This wet-bath definitely stands out when it comes to the design and the amount of space offered.
The Coachmen Beyond comes in at around $110,000 and has an awning, back up camera, and a side screen door. The wet-bath is pretty standard. It has the sink, toilet, and shower feature but it is a very compact room. With that being said, it does give you the ability to have a place to run to when nature calls and will provide enough space to wash up as well.

In the end, a Class B RV is designed to give you the ability to drive around like a van and to relax in like a house. It puts all the essentials into a small space but makes everything functional. With all the options of these RVs available, it shouldn’t be a problem finding the best small RV with shower and toilet.
